Dice has been using Triple SLI 580GTX systems and are suppose to use Quad SLI/Crossfire enabled system for the development of Battlefield 3. This information has been given through the twitter account of Johan Andersson in a reply to a fan.
Dual 590GTX and HD6990!!!!!!!!!! What? do they plan on playing BF3 on a JumboTron in Times square? jokes aside i really appreciate DICE taking the time to do this as there are some Gamers out there with $1500 worth of GPU power in their PC's and i'm sure they will be happy with the optimization and proper driver support!

"Dual 590GTX and HD6990!!!!!!!!!!" Big deal!!! ... they can't run facebook games.
i am ready for BF3. i still havent bought another 580 tho. so no Tri-SLI for me
Holy fuck, we're doomed
More reason to wait and get the upcoming GPUs from Ati and Nvidia then.
To bad they aren't releasing new cards this year.
Which is why I said "wait"...
Can we stop linking directly to Twitter?
What is the better proposed method ?
link to another site that has a screenshot of the tweet. i guess that's what he wants lol

@MidnytRain So how come I can view it? I don't have a twitter...
I'm rocking dual EVGA GTX 590 Classifieds so I'm good to go.
1 thing I wish they've added to the GTX 590s was more SLI connectors so u can connect 4 whole cards of those, that machine would make earth melt, also u r a rich bastard btw.
I'm not rich but I do have a fair amount of disposable income that goes primarily to my gaming hobby. I spend roughly 10k per year on gaming but that includes hardware (new displays, sound, PC, perps and games). This year though I am probably going to go well over that yearly budget by about 5 additional K. I am doing a lot of upgrades.
Hopefully this means there will be no problems with crossfire configurations at launch
they also were probably using 3 screens as well maybe even 9 :D But one 580 or 570 oc'd should max this game with their special mlaa hybrid solution for the pc at 1080p :D can't wait!!!
I about threw up when you mentioned MLAA and PC in the same sentence. a 580GTX can run BF3 maxed out with 4xMSAA or 4xSSAA! MLAA is not needed! oh god the gag reflex!
It's FXAA, which isn't horrible when used correctly on lower caliber video cards. Better than no AA, that's for sure
so far all of the battlefield 3 pc footage shown has been using an msaa mlaa hybrid ;) http://bps10.idav.ucdavis.e...
lets just hope that with all this Quad SLI/Crossfire implementation and optimization they dont end up forgetting that most people dont run Sli/Crossfire set-ups!I just hope that optimization for single cards is priority because all does burning set ups that were display during Gamescom 11 made me think that the game its not optimize has it shoud be.I really dont want to burn my gtx 580 just because Dice dicide to show off.
I hope they do optimize for single cards but lets not bash any developer for pushing the boundaries like we did in case of crytek when they released crysis ... or else they would pull off another crysis 2
True, this may sound a bit crazy, but I'd honestly prefer a game built for future hardware, even if it means a slight expense of optimization. I'd like a game that keeps looking better the more you throw at it, but I'd also like it to be mostly compliant with today's hardware expectations. This way, we won't have to worry about comparing Battlefield 4 to 3 when it comes around, like we did with Crysis 1 and 2. (But obviously, not so un-optimized as the first Crysis.)
Good to see a game push the high-end PCs. Medium PCs can still 'run' the game. Just not max it out.
